Re: How to switch a broom on....

I don't get it ... why those broom jokes don't get swept together in one place.

Am impressed. Hut ab. Ah this is why you create an atmosphere of safety on this particular site... bar contact with aliens, but which I'm also sure that you could do if you wanted.

It can be, depending on the size of the apparatus.

Not really, it was just part of a progression from Fitter. I was following those who had come before me.

That was only required for the cladding, by which time I was on to the next challenge.

When I was working in a lab we claimed the vacuum pump was out of vacuum and sent a newbie to the stores to ask for a canister of the stuzff.

Re: How to switch a broom on....

An apparatus we once built involved samples being drawn over a flabed scanner to be scanned so we could match the serial numbers to the measurement results. The flatbed scanner was secured by being screwed to the frame. My boss at the time was French, young, straight out of managemnet training, blonde,. and not too aware of English colloqialisms. At one point it turned out the scanner had become dislaigned as the screws were not sufficiently tight. In front of the entire team she told me "you and I need to spend some time screwing in the flat bed"

I was till hearing about thta one years after.
